I'm also big on Vonage.. After their big legal flack (and their stock tanked), 
I even bought some stock... figuring that it could only go up.  Even in the 
current market, I'm not doing that bad.. 

But about the technology and service.. I like it.. I have their never 
advertised $15/month (500minute) plan.  Even after taxes and any overages 
charges.. I still come in under $20/month!  Love it!  I run it over Time 
Warner RR ($20/month) and rarely have any probs.

BTW.. If  you are relying on ANY digital phone though.. I would also recommend 
having a cell/mobile phone as a backup though.  If you lose power for a 
night/day, even and UPS will dies and leave you without phone communications.
